Giovanni 'Nani' Pinarello, born in 1922, was one of the whole generation of riders from child rich families who chose a career in cycling. In the era of Coppi, Bartali and Bobet, he was quite a successful amateur rider with loads of won races which eventually earned him a contract as professional rider.The year of 1953 then saw him making his dream come true - by using money which he got as a compensation for handing over his Giro d'Italia starting place for the setup of a bicycle shop and manufacture in his hometown Treviso.From then on Pinarello bikes became more and more famous, more and more refined.In 1975 the company finally achieved its first Giro d'Italia victory. And today there are not many brands with a similar number of triumphs in big races.
One of their best bikes, the Pinarello Prestige was, like the name suggests the absolute top model a rare piece with fully internally routed cables long before the Montello was launched. It is absolutely one the greatest racing bicycles which left the prestigious factory from Treviso, Italy.
Manufactured with light Columbus tubes, the Pinarello Prestige is easily recognizable by its advanced internal cable routing. There are two little intake ports below the shifters and tiny holes where the cable exits the frame just below the front derailleur and at the tip of the chain stay. The brake cable is routed internally too.
Such a special bicycle deserves the best parts and that is what it gets - Campagnolo Super Record groupset with Pinarello pantographed parts and nice Ambrosio rims. Being a small sized bike, it has a proper short stem to ensure a comfortable position.
